Škoda, a Czech automaker owned by Volkswagen, has unveiled today the Citigo
iV, an all-electric city car that is expected to cost less than $20,000.

The automaker, like most of Volkswagen’s other brands, has unveiled many
electric vehicle concepts over the last few years, but the Citigo iV is
Škoda’s first all-electric vehicle to be sold under the brand.

Škoda Citigo iV Specs
In a press release, Škoda describes the vehicle’s powertrain:

    “As the first ŠKODA production vehicle, the four-seater city car is
powered exclusively by a 61?kW electric motor. This means the CITIGOe iV is
powered not only purely by a battery, but also without generating any
emissions. The 36.8?kWh lithium?ion battery allows for a range of up to 265
km in the WLTP cycle – meaning the CITIGOe iV is perfectly equipped for
traffic in modern cities.”

265 km (165 miles) on the WLTP cycle is expected to result in roughly 200 km
(125 miles) of real-world range.

The charging capacity is limited to 40 kW on a DC fast charger and it’s
equipped with a 7.2 kW onboard charger.

The boot offers a capacity of 250 l, which can be increased to 923 l by
folding down the rear seats.

By 2025, the Škoda brand plans to expand its range to include five purely
electric cars in various segments. They will contribute to the VW Group’s
plans to build 2 to 3 million all-electric cars a year and unveil 30 new
models by 2025.
